Canadian Semiprozine published by NFG Media, Toronto, and edited by Shar O'Brien. It saw six issues, A4 format, January 2003 (copyright date given as 2002) to May 2005 but fell victim to computer problems which precipitated its demise. It published "writing with attitude", strong stories with powerful plots and imagery. Writers included Chris Dolley with his debut story "The Sleeper and the Flame" (January 2003), Kaolin Fire, Paul Haines, Will McIntosh, Ruth Nestvold, Frederick Obermeyer and Bruce Holland Rogers. NFG also introduced Flash Fiction in their "69er" feature, where every story must be only 69 words long. There were interviews with Nancy Kress (#1), A C Crispin (#4), Michael Moorcock (#5) and Joe Haldeman (#6). [MA]
